Additionally, it includes a built-in solar inverter, a feature absent in the previous model. Despite these advancements, both versions have a total energy capacity of 13.5 kWh.

High-Power Capability

has highlighted the Powerwall 3's ability to handle peak power of around 30 kW, stressing its importance for home energy needs.

“What matters most about Powerwall 3 is that it can handle peak power of ~30kW, which is enough to handle dryers & air-conditioners,” Musk said.

This capability means a single Powerwall can now meet the power requirements of most homes.

Easy Installation and High Power

Tesla has also optimized the Powerwall 3 for ease of installation and high power. Musk emphasized that the new system can effectively serve as an uninterruptible power supply, ensuring homes remain powered during outages.

“PW3 is optimized for ease of installation & high power, which means that a single Powerwall can serve as an uninterruptible power supply for most homes,” Musk noted.
